Pioneer Family on Van Hoosen Farm

Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, 2019

Museum master planning, exhibition consultation, design, fabrication and installation

Phase I of a complete gallery redesign for the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm.

The story of the Taylor-Van Hoosen family, who lived on this farm for several generations, is one about chasing dreams and making history. Flutter & Wow’s job was to make sure visitors of all ages and abilities can learn something about the place and the people while also engaging in and enjoying their gallery experience. Some of our solutions were to use bold and vibrant graphics and to include a variety of fun, interactive exhibits.

In the newly designed gallery space, visitors will find interactive social media-like feeds, a family travels theater, electronic quiz boards, lift-the-flap panels, oversized wooden puzzle pieces, and push button interactives.
